We offer you and your family an unparalleled vacation experience.A visit to Kauai Backcountry Adventures represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Lihue trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
Our one-of-a-kind activities include tubing down an old sugar plantation irrigation system, through open canals and several tunnels hand-dug circa 1870. Or you can soar through the air on our 7-line zipline course, traversing the side of a mountain down to a lush bamboo grove. Through it all you will learn about our island’s history, culture and natural environment. Come join us and take home memories for a lifetime!
The mission of Kauai Backcountry Adventures is to provide eco-tourism activities that are accessible to a broad range of people. Our zipline and tubing tours have minimal environmental impact and contribute to the preservation of Kauai’s history and culture. We have helped to restore sections of the old plantation irrigation system, which are now used for the Mountain Tubing Adventure. “We are pleased to be able to set a standard for balancing recreational activities and preservation of our amazing resources here on Kauai. We have opened up spectacular lands never before available to the public. Our exclusive access ensures careful stewardship of the land, total privacy and a genuinely unique experience”, says KBA owner Kelley Carswell Haneberg, member of a 5th generation Hawaii family.
Kauai Backcountry Adventures Reviews
We did this tour with whole family of five. I would recomend this to anyone wanting a once in life time experince. Anytime we are every on the island we are sure to do this again. more »
We had a great time, very family friendly and great guides. It is hard to try to stay near your family on the tubes so you can get separated. There are guides in the front and back so no one gets... more »
Andrew and Kyle were awesome. Friendly and funny. Kailey at the front desk area is great!!! The tubing itself was so much fun! The water was invigorating, refreshing, stimulating and rejuvenating! 😁 Lunch was delicious. This was our first time, and if we're ever back on Kauai (which is probable) we'll definitely do this again!
We had such a great time today! I found this place on a travel blog and watched the company’s video on their site. It looked like such a fun and unique experience (but things can look great online and in real life be less than expected). I am happy to report that this tubing trip was amazing! Everything from checking in to having lunch at the end was well run by happy staff. Our guides, Kyle and Victor, were consummate hosts. Kyle gave us such a great history of the island and the property as we traveled to the tubes. He’s a natural at making people comfortable and teaching - and has a great sense of humor. I could try to describe the trip - but my recommendation is to just go. I wouldn’t do it justice. It’s completely unique - make sure you don’t miss out on it.
